In a significant legal development, Diamond and Diamond Lawyers have initiated class action lawsuits against three prominent Canadian post-secondary institutions: Toronto Metropolitan University, Queens University, and The University of British Columbia, alleging negligence in addressing anti-Semitic incidents on their campuses. Each lawsuit seeks damages totalling $15 million and represents current Jewish students and alumni dating back to 1998. The plaintiffs accuse the universities of violating non-discrimination policies and failing to provide adequate staff training to handle harassment. Past incidents, such as the discovery of anti-Semitic graffiti at Queen’s University in 2022 and at TMU in 2015, are cited as evidence of a consistent pattern of behaviour that has not been adequately addressed by the institutions. “This lawsuit is not driven by monetary objectives, but rather to ensure such incidents do not recur,” says Darryl Singer, head of class actions at Diamond and Diamond Lawyers. Those who believe they have experienced anti-Semitism and meet the criteria for the class action are encouraged to contact Diamond and Diamond Lawyers at 1-800-567-HURT.
